with us sir. >> thank you for inviting me. stuart: do you know of any plan from president obama or any leading democrat that really does reform entitlements? >> certainly the white house has not offered any glimpse into any thinking in that regard. i haven't heard or seen anything from the senate side in that regard either. there are some democrats who have talked about entitlement reform, like on the bowles simpson commission, but they seemed to have been pretty well relegated to -- stuart: this is my opinion that the president may pay lip service in terms of doing something about entitlements but will not go through with real reform. i think he will just simply delay any change to the basic entitlement system and just go on borrowing the money to pay for it. again, this is a very -- this is an opinion on my part. what do you say? >> well, it seems that entitlement reform has been genuine third rail in american politics. nobody wants to talk seriously about it in the white house. it's hard to find people who want to talk about it in more than generalities in either chamber. and this s

"no class." "you want to be treated like a grown-up, dress like one." >> he's being intentionally provocative and wonders why he has detractors. >> reporter: bieber, once the model mama's boy, seems eager so shed the image. overnight, biebs was back online saying the photo op came after a performance calling out a reporter by name. if you, hayley, expect me to have a change of clothes, let alone a suit at that specific time, that's crazy. he starred in an oprah special sunday night where he said -- >> people need to realize, i'm not changing, i'm just growing up, guys. like there's a lot of people waiting for me to just mess up you because a lot of teen stars do. >> reporter: as far as the canadian prime minister is concerned. he didn't seem to mind his most recent ensemble. tweeting, in fairness to justin bieber, i told him i would wear any overalls, too. for abc news, lindsay dav

is older white men like john mccain that are attacking her. i think barack obama will probably nominate her to set a trap. i think republicans are right on the substance. she said things that even i know are not true. she is privy to more information than me. she said it was about the video and the attacks were spontaneous. clearly, she had to know she was misleading. she either misled the american people or she is incredibly naive. i think republicans are right substantively. i think it is politically toxic for republicans to oppose her. host: louanne on our republicans line. caller: i hear the same rhetoric about the republicans. they are upset about the illegals. what difference does it make where they come from? i have a neighbor that is german. she is upset that she had to come to america of the right way. she gets nothing free from the american government. we just open our doors and say, come on in. please tell me how much abortion costs? how many abortions do we owe these women? do you ever talk about vasectomies? they get off scott-free. you are telling me to change my attitude. the
